The Animal Kingdom


Published 1932


This was the first film shown at the RKO Roxy Theater.

An awkward love triangle is created when a publisher (Howard) encounters a moral speed bump and engages in an affair with an open-minded artist (Harding) while married to a stodgy suburbanite (Loy). Complicating matters is the tendency of the mistress to play the role of unassuming wife while inelegant and deceptive wife acts as the mistress.

This is a stagy and rather boring film with a hammy performance by the lead actress. Partially saved by the scenes with William Gargan as the ireverent butler

I loved it. I kept saying to myself, why am I watching this? She's castrating him and he'll end up giving up his soul and staying with her. I'm glad I stayed. With John Gielgud and William Powell, Leslie Howard is one of my favorites. Would be 4 1/2 stars if possible.

Lovely lovelies.
Hip artist comunity of the times I suppose. Their arty conversations often might make one fall into a self examinitory revery and one might loose the story line now and then but fortunately we can indicate return on our players and see the scene again and again.
